At “Stream Pies,” we are serving up gooey loads of knowledge. Here, we’ll provide invaluable streaming advice on kickers and DEFs who are owned in less than 30-percent of Yahoo! leagues. We list the options in order of best to “least-best” option (with the strongest recommendations starting at the top). We also include last week’s suggestions and full season results. Points are based on default Yahoo! settings. These recommendations also work for those of you who play in daily/weekly leagues on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings as they are cheap options that allow you to spend more money on the premium positions instead.

It was a big bounce-back for “Stream Pies” in Week Eight, as all of our recommendations reached double-digit points. This week, uh… m-more good recommendations:

Team Defense (DEF) Recommendations
Week Nine Recommendations
1 – Dallas Cowboys vs. PHI
The Cowboys have been one of (if not the worst) fantasy DEF this season, but the perfect storm is a-brewing for a productive week. The presence of Greg Hardy has given their defense a “chaos” factor that it has lacked all season, and they still have enough potential playmakers (albeit ones who have underwhelmed) to wreak havoc against struggling offenses. Wait a second, the Eagles are a struggling offense.

Cincinnati Bengals: 10 points allowed, three sacks, three INTs = 13 points
